"Yes, but are you a Protestant atheist or a Catholic atheist?".- Northern Irish joke
Sure, there's no birth certificate for Marquel, but he was born under unusual circumstances--too long a story to go into here. And there are no school records, because Marquel never gone to no school. Same with medical and dental records--he didn't need doctors, because he was healthy as a horse. And Marquel hated the very idea of going to a dentist.
So if you want to job a black man for this, go find Marquel, and hang it on him. He's around someplace. Nothing but a damn box of cigars anyway--if they've got to make a big fuss about that, give him a couple hours community service or something. Power to the people! Black power! Down with the man!

I probably, if alone in that situation, would have to let the thief take the food because I'm not big and strong enough to fight a thug on my own.
This is what gets me. For a lot of folks it seems more reasonable to assume that the cop simply freaked out and killed the kid for no reason than that the kid did something to provoke the cop into shooting. Why is that?
No, just like you didn't miss the part in the article where it said all of them were dangerous felons. The police in this country have a deserved reputation for being gun happy cowboys. Your chances of encountering this decrease rapidly with your income level and the color of your skin. The whiter and the more well off you are, the less your chances of encountering one of these rogues.
I do love how they've now taken to dressing up like combat soldiers. One Iraq veteran was quoted as saying these guys were better armed and better protected while covering a peaceful demonstration than he was while on patrol in Afghanistan. They love that tough guy image, secure in the knowledge that, unlike Afghanistan, their 'enemies' are unarmed.
